Home Made Bacon Question
April 30, 2019 11:22PM
Hi.

I have tried to make bacon at home. I cured with Brown Sugar and Salt, but didn't use curing salt (causes cancer). I cured for 6 days and then smoked it. How long should this last in the fridge safely after that do you think?

I think that as with any food you should be able to apply common sense along with smell, look and feel. If it starts to smell a bit sweet and weird or goes sticky or slimy or looks unappetising its done. Since it's your first batch just keep enough in the fridge to last 1 week and freeze the rest, then depending on how well it keeps you will have a guide for the future. The least time it should last is about 4 days I would think, after that the salt and cure should give it a few days more, after that who knowscool smiley
